Pink Halloween Just Around the Corner...

Before we know it, Halloween will be here. That means it’s time to finish up the spooky and creepy wares for this fall’s shows…I’m posting a couple of wrist corsages this week because, of course, they’re pink…

Catrina Halloween Corsages FOL sale garden ridge 008 This “Lovely” lady is part of the Dia De Los Muertos series…raggedy distressed and “aged” flowers look like something left behind in an overgrown cemetery.

Hope you find lots of lovely things this Saturday and I hope your week is Pink

I love your blog, it is very creative. I signed up as a follower and hope you will do the same on my blog:
By the way, the little skeleton figures are great. You might find more by searching the Mexican Day of the Dead celebration.
Hope you enjoy my blog..

Flea Market Finds...sounds like my whole house and yard...

Milk Glass Collection

Milk Glass Collection
Who knew that a 25 cent flea market find would unleash such a collecting frenzy? I never pay more than a dollar unless it's a really nice piece. They are great grouped with a single daisy in each.

These used to be inexpensive florist vases in the 50's and 60's. Everyone's Grandmother had bunches.

Mexicana Dishes

Mexicana Dishes
My sister found these for me at Bussy's Flea Market in San Antonio, Texas. I had seen pictures in her Fiesta reference book. Mexicana was also made by Homer Laughlin in the 30's. I had been looking for several years without ever finding even a single piece when she found the set...with a promise to hold it for us, she came running to find me and I bought the entire set...60+ pieces for $50.


I've added to the set over the years, but the price and experience will never match that first amazing find.

Vintage Kitchen Hutch

Vintage Kitchen Hutch
When my hubby found this hutch it was Pepto pink and I was not 100% sure about it. But with a new red back and fresh white paint and refurbished hardware, it became one of my favorite pieces.

Nancy made me save the vine

Nancy made me save the vine
The vine and flowers painted on the inside were in such bad shape that I was ready to remove it all. Nancy -My Crafty Little Page convinced me to keep it and after some touch-up work, I'm glad I listened to her. My husband restores vintage Cushman motorscooters and he tries to make everything "mint" condition again. The Shabby Chic movement came along just in time to keep me from making some terrible mistakes.
